San Diego police are looking for a man caught on security cameras peeping into the windows of female college students' homes.
Dozens of students at San Diego State University are coming forward and sharing with NBC 7 how they’ve been victims of a "peeping tom" and say there’s more than one suspect.
The young women live in off-campus housing, all within walking distance of San Diego State University.
"He's just been seen going in the front and walking by, and looking through the windows, and one of my friends put up tape in one of the windows because he was seen looking in there," SDSU student Veronica Stecker told NBC 7.

Stecker said she and her roommates have caught two different men on-camera within the last few months who were peering inside their home.
" 'What are your intentions?' " Strecker wondered. " 'Why do you keep coming to our house?' 'And why don’t you leave us all alone?' " questioned Stecker.
Roommates Amy Manescu and Chloe Weitzman, who live down the street from Stecker, said that they, too, have reported a similar problem to the San Diego police.
"Chloe had her blinds open, so he’s, like, looking in through here," Manescu said, pointing at a window.
Police say they are investigating several cases of a so-called prowler who has been seen in the College Area on Ewing Street, Tipton Street, Dorothy Drive and Mary Lane Drive.
"It's also more so frustrating that it's happened to so many people and nothing has really been done about it," Weitzman said.
San Diego police described one of the suspect as a Black man, 30-40 years old, 6-feet-tall with a thin build who weighs an estimated 180-200 pounds. He has a bald head and was seen wearing black-framed prescription-style glasses. In some cases, he was seen with a short beard.
